Report Fraud and Abuse

Fraud and abuse are the number one threats to our healthcare system, costing Americans billions of dollars each year. Healthcare fraud is the intent to deceive a company into paying for services that either were not or should not have been provided. Those breaking the law could be physicians, patients, laboratories, hospitals, employees, vendors, or a billing service used by a provider.

Fraud and abuse can take many different forms, including:

  • Billing for services or items that were not provided
  • Billing for services or equipment that are more expensive than what was supplied
  • Members allowing someone else to use their WHA ID card
  • Identity theft
  • Falsifying medical records
  • Taking payment from another provider in exchange for a patient referral

WHA is committed to deterring, detecting and investigating healthcare fraud and abuse. But the fight against healthcare fraud and abuse is everyone's responsibility, including our employees, members, providers, hospitals and vendors. Through our compliance program we have established a toll-free hotline, which you can help by calling and reporting what you believe to be fraudulent or abusive actions.
